A well-kept garden is every mum's dream. From browsing patio furniture to doing some therapeutic gardening, mums enjoy spending time in the outdoors and creating their very own hub. After all, where else will they enjoy a glass of wine after a hard day's work?

Whether there's a special occasion coming up or you simply want to show appreciation to the number one lady in your life, a garden gift is a fab idea to help your mum achieve the garden of her dreams.

Stuck on ideas? From fancy planters to patterned cushions, we've listed the best garden gifts for mums.

Gift your plant-loving mum this wonderful book on how to master the art of growing plants at home. She'll learn how to grow her own succulents, create an air plant display, as well as the benefits of maintaining a connection with nature on a daily basis.

Review: "Love this book, not only is it a fantastic coffee table book, it is also a brilliant read. So many new ideas, would highly recommend."

Artscope Set of 4 Decorative Cushion Covers
Price: $16.99

This set of tropical pillow covers is the perfect addition to any garden seating area. They're water resistant, made of quality fabrics and are available in over 30 different designs to suit all tastes.

Review: "The pictures don't do these gorgeous cushion covers justice. I bought them for a garden sofa and they're perfect. The fabric feels very good quality, I'm very happy with my purchase."

This is what we meant when we said fancy planters. The Lorita is a work of art, that also happens to be a plant pot. It goes without saying that this planter exudes elegance and will elevate any outdoor space in an instant.

Every proud garden mum will love this personalised garden sign to hang up and show off during garden parties and BBQs. The sign itself is made of rustic slate which comes with a thick woven cord to hang it from.

Review: "I bought this as a gift for a keen gardener who loved it. The plaque itself is very nice u0026 the lettering on the personalisation was just lovely. The whole process was very simple u0026 the plaque was delivered in less than two weeks."

Those who spend the better part of their days gardening know just how valuable a fresh set of gloves can be. This sweet floral set is made of lightweight cotton to keep those green-fingered hands protected at all times. The lovely shea butter and vitamin E-enriched hand cream will also help soothe hands after a long day of weeding.

Review: "Really great value. The gloves are a good fit and are just the correct quality to allow you to move your fingers freely but also feel protected as well. The cream is an added bonus for when you return from the gardening to wash your hands then treat them with the cream, very soothing."

What better way to help mum grow her plant jungle than with an ongoing subscription? Plants By Post offers gorgeous, hand-selected plants right at your door at any frequency you like. Each plant will vary in size, and can reach up to 60cm in height, with a pet-safe option available.

Review: "I've ordered a few plants from PlantsByPost now and always been happy with my items! Thank you - definitely one of my go-to places when I'm looking to buy a new plant or present for someone."

Not only does this make a wonderul decorative piece for the garden, it's also a fun way to keep guests entertained for her next garden party!

Review: "Gorgeous little set! My son loves playing with us! Lovely colours too!"

Help her water her plants in style with this elegant watering can. With a capacity of up to two litres, there's no need to make multiple trips, and we love the comfortable design that makes it easy to hold.

Review: "Easy to carry and lightweight. Timeless style with both practical and decorative purposes. Nicely sized and not bulky at all. Carries a really good amount of water"

Have you ever seen such a pretty mister? Made from rose-tinted glass, this boho-style mister is wonderful for spritzing smaller plants such as succulents and looks fabulous on display, too.

Review: "I love this mister! Delivery was quick despite covid delays, easy to use and the nozzle sprays evenly leaving my plants refreshed!"

Help your mum add some ambience to her garden with this gorgeous hanging latern. The vintage pattern creates a wonderful shadow, and is powered by solar energy.

Review: "Beautiful! Bought as a present for my mum, she is so pleased, they light up every evening (they are dimmer on evenings when there has been no sun in the day). Excited to see them in person!"

A pet-friendly duo of plants perfect for mums who are both plant and animal lovers. The Areca Palm and Never Never Plant combine beautifully indoors and out, and are low-maintenance.

Containing a trowel, a mister, gloves and more, this personalised kit contains everything mum needs to tend to her garden. It comes with a personalised drawstring carry bag, as well as a gift card to send straight to the lucky recipient.

Review: "Bought for my dad as a father's day gift, and he was out in the garden that very day using it. He loves the gloves especially, very tough."
